It's not that Mastercards have just vanished. But Chase is one of the biggest card lenders (if not THE biggest) and having them going exclusively with Visa is a big deal. From a practical standpoint, it's probably not going to be that huge a hit on the Mastercard network since Chase has been biasing themselves toward Visa cards with new customers for years now. And the Chase/Visa thing is a big deal in forums like here and elsewhere since Chase is one of the most popular card lenders.
I carry a rare Chase Freedom Mastercard that was upgraded this year from the original Slate Mastercard my wife had been carrying for 15 years. At some point in the next 90 days or so I expect them to send out a Visa Signature to replace it. But I'll let them do it when they feel they have to. The other Chase card I carry (a CSP) is already a Visa.
As mentioned above, Barclays and USAA do Mastercard exclusively. BofA still offers Mastercard products (they will be my sole Mastercard after the Chase switch). And others do as well.
My only other card moves of late are EMV upgrades...I've asked for chipped versions of my Amex BCP, Fidelity Amex and CSP cards, all of which will arrive next week. That leaves my US Bank Cash +, Chase Freedom and Discover IT cards with the only ones without the added security feature.
